NotCoD Episode 1 Review – Definitely Not Call of Duty

NotCoD Header

If you can’t tell by the title, the graphics, the gameplay, the story, or whatever else, I want to make this clear. NotCoD is not Call of Duty. Is that a bad thing? Of course not, but this parody sidescrolling shooter does just make me want to play Call of Duty instead. I shouldn’t need to start off by saying ... Read More »

Tearaway Unfolded Review – Crafting Excellence

Tearaway Unfolded Header

Tearaway was the 2013 PlayStation Vita exclusive that managed to make me look at the Vita and decided it was almost all worth it for that one game. Not many people bought the Vita, so the smart move was made to bring Tearaway to the PlayStation 4. A remake from the ground up, can Tearaway Unfolded keep the charm of ... Read More »

Postal Redux Review: No Return Address

Postal Redux Banner

Nineteen years. That’s right; it’s been nineteen whole years since Running With Scissors released the original Postal on PC. The isometric twin-stick shooter came out to controversy with a vengeance, where your objective was simple – kill anything that moves, civilians, cops, military, more civilians, and more cops. Now, Postal Redux brings Postal back with another vengeance, but this time ... Read More »

Battleborn Review – Super Monday Night Borderlands

Battleborn Wallpaper

Class based shooters have been around for a while. Team Fortress 2 is the obvious one that comes to mind, and it can probably be considered the granddaddy of those who came after. The emerging so-called “hero shooter” genre is the current result of the evolution of what TF2 started years ago. When a new (using the term broadly here) genre arises, the all ... Read More »

Stellaris Review – Reaching for the Stars

Stellaris Header

I’ve never really played a 4X game before. I don’t really even know why. To my credit, I’ve tried the base version Civilization V, Crusader Kings II, and Europa Universalis IV. Each time I would put a few hours in, looking for a reason to continue playing, but I found nothing that intrigued me. So when Stellaris was announced, I dismissed it. At ... Read More »

Omnibus Review – The Bus That Couldn’t Slow Down

Omnibus Header

Omnibus is a game that features a level where you harvest corn on the moon while avoiding oversized bumpers. Omnibus is a game where you fight a giant totem pole that shoots water. Omnibus is a game that lets you control a bus made out of lava that can explode with the press of a button. As far as physics games go, Omnibus is as weird as they ... Read More »

Total War: Warhammer First Impressions

Total War Warhammer Header

The Total War franchise has been continuing onward for close to two decades, and as a result, things have gotten a little too safe and comfortable. Players knew what to expect from a Total War launch: a grand strategy game that is set in a historical setting and filled to the brim with bugs. At least until Total War: Warhammer ... Read More »

Overwatch Review- Heroes of the Sawmill


As I played Overwatch for hours and hours over the course of this month, I couldn’t help but continue to wonder what we lost in the transition that turned Blizzard’s next MMO into a team-based FPS. The heroes of this game give so much character in their small interactions and dialogue; it’s tantalizing to think how much more of that development is now ...

Senran Kagura Estival Versus Review – Hometown

Senran Kagura Estival Versus FI

Senran Kagura Estival Versus, the fifth in the series thus far, delivering exactly as promised. There are plenty of buxom shinobi clad from four different schools in revealing outfits clashing against rival clans. This time around they’ve all been sent packing to the beach for the Kagura Millenium Festival where a lot of danger and hijinks are afoot. There is no ... Read More »

Typefighters Review – Keyboards are a Decent Weapon

Typefighters Header

When you think of competitive multiplayer games, usually you’ll be thinking of jumping onto platforms and shooting at others, racing cars, or participating in wacky sports. Typefighters is a little unusual in that it’s a competitive multiplayer typing game. Does this unique gameplay style shine, or should it have stuck to a different sort of competition? While Typefighters is mostly ... Read More »
